Look in His Eyes
Verse 1

In the game of love, the points that count are subtlety and finesse.
Not crude displays of your mental craze that advertize distress!
A rippling laugh and a fund of chaff, with never the sound of sighs!
And all else above, if you'd win at love,
Always look in your partner's eyes!

Refrain

Look in his eyes, look in his eyes,
Take my advice and be wise.
Hints that you need, in your plans to succeed!
Plainer than print you'll be able to read.
Look in his eyes, Look in his eyes,
If love anywhere in them lies!
Without any doubt, it is bound to peep out.
Umm, Umm, Umm, Through his eyes!

Verse 2

In the dance, there's your chance, then the stage is all set for the play!
With his arm 'round your waist, you are properly placed for survey!
Your romance, may advance, to the thought of the trousseau you'll buy!
And you're planning the house. To a rhythm by Strauss!
As you watch the lovelight in his eyes.

Refrain

Look in his eyes, Look in his eyes,
Take my advice and be wise.
Hints that you need in your plans to succeed.
Plainer than print you'll be able to read.
Look in his eyes. Look in his eyes
And if love anywhere in them lies.
Without any doubt, it is bound to peep out.
Umm, Umm, Umm, through his eyes.
